    Personal profile


    I am an Assistant Professor specialising in the assessment of natural hazards using remote sensing. My PhD research evaluated the relationship between earthquakes and volcanic activity using thermal remote sensing and, as part of this, I completed a Short Term Fellowship at the University of Hawai’i. Following my PhD, I worked as a Consultant in Remote Sensing in an agricultural and environmental consultancy before returning to Coventry University as a Lecturer in Physical Geography and Natural Hazards. Since then, I have been promoted to Assistant Professor in Geography and Natural Hazards, was the Course Director for the undergraduate degree in Geography and Natural Hazards and, most recently, I have joined Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience as an Assistant Professor in Research.

    Research Interests

    My research interests lie, primarily, in the utility of geospatial technologies to improve our understanding of the natural environment, specifically natural hazards. To date, this has focused on the use of thermal remote sensing to analyse and model the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes, monitor volcanic activity using geostationary satellites, and evaluate the impact of natural hazards on land use change and food security. More broadly, I am interested in the use of earth observation information to inform environmental challenges and I have been involved in research that has assessed vegetation cover in managed realignment sites, evaluated the impact of climate change on agricultural productivity and identified improvements in agricultural resilience to natural hazards.
